This is the point where I ask to myself: paranoia or extreme paranoia. Which one to embrace?

I'll be following this thread.

From the news article: "John Gossman, Architect on the Microsoft Azure team, will join The Linux Foundation Board of Directors." This part right here makes me feel uneasy, why the faak TLF wants somebody from Micro$oft on their board of directors, is not MS contrary to what Linux is? "Microsoft Fortifies Commitment to Open Source" yeah right! :lol: Well, I guess money can buy their love!

I remember when the question about MONO struck in the FOSS. I used OpenSUSE then when there was an aggressive campaign against the introduction of it and suddenly it just went away. I turned over my attention to Debian by the time so I let go of that.

Microsoft is a monster. Sure, but what can you do about monsters? You either kill or tame it. And if it fears you, you have the upper hand.
